If you've enjoyed being immersed in the arts and entertainment community your entire life, there's no reason your social agenda should change after retirement. For many seniors, supporting the arts goes beyond simply attending a performance once a year to philanthropic endeavors or even volunteer opportunities.
And the Queen City is more than welcoming to patrons of the arts like you.
The Cincinnati Arts Association welcomes members as donors and volunteers , helping you stay connected to the arts after retirement.
There is nothing quite like the Cincinnati Arts Association.
When the Aronoff Center for the Arts was being built on Walnut Street in the early 90s, the Cincinnati Arts Association (CAA) was created as a non-profit organization to oversee the management and programming not only of the Aronoff and the Weston Art Gallery, which is located in its lobby, but at the historic Music Hall, as well.
Most of the stage presentations we see are actually produced by other arts groups like the Cincinnati Symphony, the Cincinnati Opera and Broadway in Cincinnati, but they’re organized by the CAA.
And this year, the CAA has planned some amazing performances.
